Maria Dangond Doula
About Maria Dangond
Hola, I’m Maria, a NYC based Birth andPostpartum Doula. I have been honored to serve many families from varying backgrounds and household incomes. I honed my skills at the renowned Doula Trainings International and am certified in Infant and Child CPR. I am also a Certified Lactation Consultant and trained in Mental Health First Aid, SpinningBabies and HypnoBirthing.  

The fifteen years of experience running my own wellness company – where I practiced as a Health Coach and Life Mentor – give me the ability to care for my clients on a deeply personal level. I have a passion for cultivating empowered birthing persons and healthy babies through evidence-based education, compassion, and nurturing.  

When I’m not doula-ing, I’m doing yoga, going on adventures with my husband, dancing, and musing on life’s many mysteries.
"I believe it is every birthing person’s right to choose the kind of birth they want and to have an abundance of support throughout their entire journey of pregnancy. The depth of my knowledge and continuous attention to detail, allows me to guide families with great care, especially when facing potentially difficult or emergency situations that need to be evaluated in critical moments."
